So I had a great time running with a small group at BW last Thursday, and the end of the very hot day I noticed the brakes were noisy at pit speeds. I had started the day with about 40% pad remaining on my stock pads. The car ran a lot of laps and when I checked the pads they looked like maybe 10% remaining, so I called it a day and figured I could drive the (mostly freeway) 220 miles home and change out the pads at the first opportunity. I saw a lot of pad transfer on the rotors that I figured was the cause of the noise but I didn't want to use the usual cleanup method of a couple of hard stops because I had so little pad left. Long story short, it got noisier on the drive home, and when I checked the pads at home they were to the backing plate! My wild theory is that the transferred pad material ground down the remaining pad and I would have been better off making a couple of hard stops to clean up. What do you all think? Looks like I'm buying rotors as well as pads...
